Coupon clippers, rejoice! September is National Coupon Month, that time of year when DealPass.com, an online savings portal, celebrates the continued growth of the savvy-consumer market, those consumers who know that a penny saved truly is a penny earned. DealPass offers its visitors easy-to-use grocery coupons, online deals, seasonal special offers and a variety of savings programs that can stretch any budget.
According to the National Coupon Month website, not only can spending 20 minutes a week clipping coupons save you $800 to $1,000 a year, but coupon clippers span every income group. Whether you are college student trying to make ends meet or the head of a two-income family, using coupons offers a no-brainer way to save some extra money on items you already buy or a low-cost opportunity to try something new.
Regardless of your income bracket, DealPass offers you a few tips on how to put coupon deals to work for you:
--Keep your eyes peeled. Coupons aren’t just found in the usual locations -- the Sunday papers, magazines and in your mailbox; you can also find them online, on grocery store shelves and on purchase receipts from supermarkets and retail stores. In fact, a number of manufacturers offer coupons through their 800 numbers (which are often listed on their products’ packages); just call them to learn more and request yours.
--Get your clips together. There are few things more frustrating than knowing you have a coupon for something when you’re unable to find it. Store your coupons in organizers, and keep them handy. Be sure to put them in a useful order (by store/by aisle/by expiration date, for instance) so all you have to do is pull out the right coupon(s) during your next trip to a certain store.
--Focus on the family. Coupons can help you save on family needs, so get your family in on the coupon-clipping process. Have your kids clip and your spouse organize while you search for additional coupons. Getting your kids involved can also teach them valuable lessons about budgeting and finances. If your kids need incentives, tell them they can use the coupon savings they find as supplements to (or replacement for) their allowances.
--Time your shopping trips. Many supermarkets offer double or triple coupon days, so be sure to hold onto valid coupons until these increased savings days are offered. If you have manufacturers’ rebate coupons, try to use them on sales days for even greater savings. Regardless of sales days or other offers, though, be sure to use your coupons before they expire, especially those that offer savings on everyday household items that you know you’re going to need.
Whether the economy is good or bad, coupons can help you stretch your household budget and pay for everything from essential needs to just-for-fun items. All it takes is an eye for good deals and the scissors to take advantage of them, reports DealPass.
